Cat & Canary Flute

One of my Belgian Ukulele chums sent me a sweet present this week. The Cat & Canary flute. It's a slide flute which can be played with or without a 'warble', depending on which angle you hold it. And, the little birdy in the cage flutters around when in warbling mode. BONUS! Thank you ever so for the charming gift, Herman! And speaking of gifts, listen to what Herman can do with a ukulele...
An interesting aside... When i typed Cat & Canary in google i came across this clip from the 1927 film "The Cat and The Canary", an American silent horror film adaptation of John Willard's 1922 black comedy play of the same name directed by German Expressionist filmmaker Paul Leni, and starring Laura La Plante as Annabelle West. I LOVE the modern intrepretation of the sound track by L'Inquietant Suspendu.
